Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Made Easy

Yes, folks, you read that right. Thanksgiving can be easy, even when cooking gluten-free. Wondering how to make a stuffing that’s gluten-free but appealing to everyone at your table? Need a recipe for pie? How about some gluten-free bread (you know, the stuff that isn’t as dense as a rock)? And how to pull it all off?

Well, friends, I’m here to share some of the best, latest, and greatest recipes to help you make everyone happy. Grab a snack and open up Pinterest, because I’m sure you’ll need to pin some of these babies. And once you’ve gathered your recipes and made a menu, be sure you set up a schedule (especially if you’re hosting – I’ve made a schedule for years now, making many things in advance, to save time and sanity). That way, you can be sure your Thanksgiving holiday will go as smoothly as possible. I can’t promise that old Aunt Pam won’t tie one on that evening, or that your brother Phil won’t throw things across the living room when the quarterback for (insert favorite football team here) throws an interception, but at least you’ll have good gluten-free eats.

    so funny that I *just* saw the pingback notification for my pumpkin caramel cups because I literally just ate one (yup, still have ’em in my freezer!) Great roundup!

      Cara – Those pumpkin caramel cups are AMAZING. I made them a few weeks back. Brought some to my Mom who had just gotten home from the hospital. Definitely a hit.

    The holidays sneaked up on me this year! I can’t believe it’s time to roast turkey and make pies. Didn’t we just do this????

    Your Thanksgiving sounds quite interesting….it’s usually pretty calm at the Green household. I did forget about the incessant football…guess that’s why I stay in the kitchen.

    Thanks for including my mac & cheese. You’ve put together quite a roundup!
